Politics should serve man. Here is a phrase that summarizes this entire book, a phrase which says very little and says it in a rather confusing way if the listener does not have a true understanding of man.

Before philosophism and the Revolution corrupted politics, and let the same be said of the economy, they corrupted man. In contrast, before providing a Christian politics, the Church put man in order, and gave us the Christian.
